A Quality of Care NL webinar series where we have quality conversations about health, health care and social systems in Newfoundland and Labrador.
Healthy Discussions: Successful Aging
With a population that is rapidly aging, many people in our province may be thinking about how their lives, or the lives of older family and friends, may change as they age. Join us for a conversation about healthy/successful aging, empowerment, caring for older adults, and the resources that are available for seniors and families in our province.
Healthy Discussions: Demystifying Mental Health
May 1-7 is Mental Health Week in Canada! According to the Canadian Mental Health Association, each year, 1 in 5 Canadians experience a mental illness or mental health issue. While not everyone experiences mental health issues, everyone does have mental health and just like your physical health, your mental health is important to maintain. Join us for our next Healthy Discussions webinar where we’ll chat with some members of NL Health’s Prevention and Promotion team about holistic mental health, resilience, and strategies for maintaining our mental health.
Healthy Discussions: Oral Health
Good oral health enables individuals to perform essential functions such as eating, breathing and speaking. It also contributes to our self-confidence, well-being and the ability to live, socialize and work without pain, discomfort or embarrassment. Oral health is integral to general health. (World Health Organization – https://www.who.int/health-topics/oral-health) Join us for a discussion about maintaining oral health with the NL Dental Association and the NL Dental Hygienists Association.
Healthy Discussions: Food Insecurity
What is food insecurity? Did you know that 17.9 per cent of Newfoundland and Labrador households were food insecure in 2021? (Household Food Insecurity in Canada 2021, PROOF) Food First NL CEO, Josh Smee, joins us for a conversation about food insecurity, its impact, and resources available in our province to help.
Healthy Discussions: The Social Determinants of Health
What exactly are social determinants of health? Do things like my living arrangements or how much money I make have a bigger impact on my health than I think? Quality of Care NL dives into these questions and more during this session with Dr. Janice Fitzgerald, the province’s Chief Medical Officer of Health.
